During the pandemic, in the month of March 2020, Venezia da Vivere launched the project #RiscrivereilFuturo, an open debate with citizens, scholars and entrepreneurs that aimed to re-imagine the future of Venice. In 2021, the project is still ongoing with the creatives of Venice as its main protagonists.
On 24 June, in a conference hosted by Stefano Micelli, Lorenzo Cinotti and Laura Scarpa, the Alto Artigianato Venezia network has presented itself to the public to explain how these companies have used the period of the pandemic to innovate and create. A useful investigation for all the productive realities that today find themselves operating in a new scenario.
The evening is also be an opportunity to discover the latest creations, see the craftsmen at work and the ancient traditions that have contributed to the history of craftsmanship in the city:
